Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino - CGS - from Salento in Puglia, southern Italy, specializes in playing the driving rhythms of the pizzica dance and other ancient rhythms on traditional instruments. The pizzica is the local variant of the legendary mystical spider-trance-dance, the tarantella. Southern Italy has long had a lively traditional music scene teeming with compelling ensembles like CGS - but the bands rarely make it to the US: Though highly regarded since its formation in 1975, CGS is...

The ep starts dubby in the beginning, made after his first visit at audioLAB Dresden, where he came across. The track has recordings of a guest singer in it. Very smooth the ep continues to a more introverted but playful level and brings us to 2 pieces of SciFi-adventure-game-music, produced years ago for the game 'The Kore Gang'. 11 more of such tracks can be found on his CD on Bohnerwachs Tonträger. Head over to Suburban trash for those. http://suburbantrash.c8.com/ ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Dub, Reggae, Electronic, Electronica, Phonocake, Netlabel Source: release page @ phonocake

Sometimes I edited the sounds on the spot, when I could borrow a second walkman from a fellow traveller You'll hear me buying tickets, jamming with an old friend, walking into a...

.Tape. is 26 year old Daniel Romero from Asturias, Spain. He wears glasses, likes playing with toy instruments such as the casio pt88, toy accordion, and a toy spanish guitar. He uses a very simple sequencer and records his toy instruments with a simple pc microphone. Bringing together his love for lo-fi indie pop with his love for melodic electro-pop, .tape. creates a unique story-book landscape where more than likely, you'll find the princess saves the dragon from the evil prince.

Damien Shingleton: "I made some field recordings in Darjeeling, most significant of which were those of a blind Nepalese beggar at the Chowk Bazaar and the family at the Tenzing restaurant on Burdwan Road. I was apprehensive about recording the beggar, afraid of looking like a tourist vulture. As you can hear in the recording, I don't think he knew he was being recorded although a friend of his explained afterwards. The family are Gelong Bhutia, Tenzing Wongmo, Yangchen Dolker (15) and...

The Four Seasons (Italian: Le quattro stagioni) is a set of four violin concertos by Antonio Vivaldi. Composed in 1723, The Four Seasons is Vivaldi's best-known work, and is among the most popular pieces of Baroque music. The texture of each concerto is varied, each resembling its respective season. For example, "Winter" is peppered with silvery pizzicato notes from the high strings, calling to mind icy rain, whereas "Summer" evokes a thunderstorm in its final movement,...
